#23 in James Suckling Top 100 Wines of 2017

The wonderfully silky texture with an added juiciness is what makes this wine so very special. The flawless and seamless nature to the wine is so impressive that it takes your breath away. Plenty of beautiful fruit but what mouthfeel. Drink now and forever.

It's never a dark wine, more of a ruby or bright color, and it has a nose of youth, subtle and elegant. But the quality shows in the unbelievable elegance and harmony on the palate, where the tannins are very fine, the flavors are subtle but deep and the length is just phenomenal. This is only medium-bodied, with perfect ripeness and integrated acidity. This should have a very long life in bottle, especially as I had the chance to check the evolution of the 2004 next to this.

Only made in the best vintages – and they don't get any better than 2010 – this is a brooding, ageworthy blend of mostly Tempranillo, with 20% Garnacha and 10% Mazuelo. It's rich, dark and complex with stylish tannins and scented oak.

A silky texture carries berry, cherry, spice and mineral flavors in this generous red. Orange peel acidity and light, firm tannins keep this focused. Maturing notes of tobacco and tea add depth. Harmonious and graceful. Drink now through 2024. 7,500 cases made. by Tim Atkin
